What educators are saying

The kids whom I have used this with have loved it! Awesome idea to include some shapes with the letters!! Thanks for a great resource!!!
I have used this resource with my Newcomer SLIFE students. We are learning letter names and the middle schoolers love this game!


Do your students need alphabet identification practice? Build recognition of upper and lowercase letters with this fun and addictive ABC game that is perfect for your Pre-K, Kindergarten, and ESL ELL learners.

Do you spy the pair of letters on any two cards? There is only ONE match! Not only is this game is fun to play over and over, it it a new game every time you shuffle the deck. Find the one and only match on two cards. Choose from lowercase game, uppercase game, or mixed. Watch the video preview for how to play (sight words game is shown but the method is the same).


This resource includes three pair stare decks:

  • Lowercase deck (30 cards)
  • Uppercase deck (30 cards)
  • Mixed case deck (57 cards)

Use for alphabet reinforcement, for literacy centers, or even create mini decks for students to borrow and practice at home! These would also be useful for your ESL classroom. Instructions are included for solo play, pair play, and whole class play.

This version was created after a number of requests from teachers using Pair Stare games for sight words. I am happy to say I was finally able to meet the request and develop three decks to practice the alphabet.

It helps my functional skills student practice his letters, and it keeps my on grade level 4th graders engaged while they are working with him. I love this so much."

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "My kindergartners loved this game. Great for reinforcing the names of the letters!"'
